5 Hardy Weinberg principle Given a series of assumptions, allele frequencies and genotype frequencies will not change between generations The assumptions are: No selection No mutation No migration Infinitely large population Random mating

8 Remember the multiplication and addition rules? If you just roll one die, what’s the chance of getting a 4? What’s the chance of getting 4 twice in a row? The combined probability of independent events occurring together is the product of their individual probabilities

9 If you just roll one die, what’s the probability of getting either a 4 or a 6? The combined probability of 2 mutually exclusive events is the sum of their individual probabilities

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
